BA Livery News Part 3 (by skipness1E Mar 9 2013 in Civil Aviation) Archived (!)

Just to bump things up, add two more with G-ZBJC having been delivered and G-STBG due. G-STBG will be the first B77W with the crest.

Yes I was inspecting it at ARN last night, commenting on how well it had been painted. All sharp edges and no overflow.

Good news to hear G-EUOE is back in the air and due back in service shortly. Crazy to think almost 4 months ago.

As for Liveries isn't G-EUYP due for delivery in the next few weeks, surely must be painted in new livery?

G-EUUY was ferried to MAD on 8 September. Before that G-EUXG on 7 August and G-EUUS on 19 August were also ferried to MAD. Both returned to LHR after nine and thirteen days in ~Union Flag Crest livery. So G-EUUY . . .

Yes. First flight and ferried TLS-XFW on 13 September in full Union Flag Crest livery:

Yes, why has BA opted not to take new ceoA320s with sharklets like most other carriers have done recently?

'UN is the likely candidate to be # 79. 77W G-STBH was reportedly towed from the FAL to the Paint Shop at PAE on 11 September so might already be in the Crest livery. Either way it is "favourite" to be # 78.

Incidentally G-EUPY is the fifth BA 320 to carry the test registration "F-WWIC". The other four were:

G-BUSJ (from 13 June to 6 August 1990)
G-EUUY (from 19 August to 19 September 2008)
G-EUYF (from 5 to 28 January 2010)
G-EUY1 (from 14 May to 3 June 2010

I do not think so.

G-EUPY carried the test registration D-AVYK. G-EUUY did carry the test registration F-WWIC. The Airfleets web site confirms this:

http://www.airfleets.net/ficheapp/plane-a320-3607.htm

http://www.airfleets.net/ficheapp/plane-a319-1466.htm

However for "G-EUY1" please read "G-EUYI"!
